Respironics SimplyGo Mini portable concentrator is now FAA approved for all commercial flights to and from the United States! Weighing in at a mere 5 pounds, Respironics has ensured a convenient, safe, and easy way to travel with your oxygen solution.
It’s important that you are able to use your portable oxygen concentrator wherever you go and though a POC is already FAA approved many airlines have additional requirements you will need to meet before your flight. We suggest preparing to fly with your oxygen concentrator 2 weeks before your travel date, this should give you plenty of time to research or call your airline and acquire any required documentation.
Regulations differ from airline to airline and requirements range from a doctor’s note, 48 hours advanced notice, a copy of your prescription, to a physician’s statement confirming your ability to travel. That is why it’s extremely important to carefully read the requirements on the airlines website, or speak to a customer service representative when preparing for your flight to avoid any delay in travel plans.
One of the great things about a FAA approved portable oxygen concentrator, as well as their accessories, is that it won’t be counted as part of your carry on limit. Following a few simple guidelines will make sure you can go wherever you need to go, whenever you need to go, while getting the oxygen therapy you need.
